talking about the mosque at ground zero, and obama wanting to bring terrorist into your own backyard. we under estimate the ability of a small group of radical republicans and their friends at fox news and conservative talk radio to really ratchet things up. i wish someone in the press would draw the parallel between president obama's inability to get congress to work on that issue, because he's right it makes better financial and security sense to close guantanamo, and to draw the parallel with immigration reform, and the trouble marco rubio is having getting republicans on board with the likes of fox news. >> michael: that's exactly right. the president spoke about the senate of where rubio serves and, quote, the habit of requiring 60 votes for even the most modest piece of legislation gumming up the works. that's what has happened. >> it's a full flection addiction at this point. i've been watching tweaking out on the senate floor for years now. every year they've been if the minority since they lost it in 2006, they have filibustered more than ever before. at this point every year we
it works for those guys but not barack obama. that astounds me. but let's talk about the immigration idea what he has been saying on immigration. we know how it plays in congress. how is it playing in texas? >> um, as you know, as a lot of people know, one of rick santorum's problems besides the fact that he had foot-in-mouth disease in the last campaign, was that he was relatively soft from the point of view from the right, his own party on immigration. he was a relatively moderate on immigration. so was george bush. you look at john mccain, who has had a variety of positions over the years but effectively is a nuanced and informed position on immigration. you get these people along the border and many folks along the border, not everybody but many political folks along the border in states like texas understand that the immigration issue is much more difficult and nuanced. there are family connections. there are economic connections. so you have in most cases not in the case of cruz, but in the case of many of these candidates the greater recognition of the value of immigration. withexc
say right, just to make a political statement against president obama is really disgusting. >> michael: i couldn't agree with you more. also he is not running for president again. he is done and he won. let me talk about an ad war is brewing in montana. check out this from the progressive change campaign committee. >> 79% of montana voted support background checks so why did senator max baucus vote against us? senator baucus now that you are retiring, please put montana first. >> michael: very interesting post retirement ad. the nra put out this full page ad. your freedom is under attack but senator max baucus is fighting back. call senator baucus and thank him for being montana first. do you think he will change his gun vote now that he has announced his reenvironment? >> i must say i do not think so michael. first, i think the progressive change campaign committee has done tremendous work in a lot of races. i don't understand this -- the money spent here in montana. i don't understand max baucus's vote. i regret it and deplore it and i think he is wro
they are looking over their shoulder to see who they want to go talk to next. and that's exactly right. >> michael: never before in history has anybody ever said the best line i heard is from george will. so you made television history. obama walked on stage with a couple of lines from dj khaled's "all i do is win." how was that intro received that night? >> i don't think most of us even knew who it was from. i have a younger fiance who told me what it was. and i don't think anybody in that room with the average age is probably 50 knew what he was talking about. it's almost predominantly white that whole group. so it was not exactly the rap music audience. he also made a couple of other references that most people didn't understand. but overall, you know, obama -- the thing about obama is -- obviously somebody else writes the jokes. in fact i know that guy that wrote the jokes a comedy writer by the name of billy kimmel no relationship to jimmy kimmel and the jokes are written for him. but his timing and his delivery is pretty amazing. you know, he -- he has perfect
